The 3D Makers Zone

The 3D Makers Zone is a site where we make smart products via smarter production.

We offer demonstrations, presentations, exhibition on request.

The Dutch manufacturing industry needs to catch on with the latest developments in digital fabrication. In order for this to happen, the government has started the Smart Industry program and the Smart Industry Action Agenda. The 3D Makers Zone is a site where the items on this agenda are actually applied by making smarter products via smarter production.

By combining several disruptive technologies like Internet of Things, robotics and 3D printing, the 3D Makers Zone produces new prototypes, parts and end products. Companies get the opportunity to learn to innovate as well as get fast results while requiring only modest investments rather than investing in all the hardware in house innovation in these technologies would require. Smart, fast, affordable and efficient!

New and smarter products have been created as well as produced for several critical infrastructure companies. Technical students as well as suppliers of said companies contribute to solving problems and improving the processes via hackathons, all within just days! PWN used the hackathon-method to gain several new smart products that help it in maintaining its water supply network.

Next steps are upscaling with more disruptive technologies and the combination of these. Letting more companies and their suppliers (and students) cooperate in open innovation, that way making it possible to research and innovate. Branching out to other regions and countries.

We combine all aspects of cities, hotspots and venues into a powerful place to innovate

CEO of the Johan Cruijff ArenA Henk Markerink has commented on the importance of the ArenA collaborating with partners to realise innovations, instead of going it alone. As such, the innovation deal sees the Johan Cruijff ArenA work closely together with other companies, knowledge institutions, the municipal authorities, residents and visitors.
